Gimme a moment, let me pop them into my console and I'll tell y...oh wait, they aren't out yet so how the heck should we know??
GuyThatPlaysGames  +   1136d ago
Just choosing out of those 3, I would say Black Ops 2. No I'm not a CoD fanboy but as far as play-ability, entertainment, and community CoD has it in the bag. MoH isn't anywhere in the running for best FPS.
Muffins1223  +   1136d ago
Please...halo is a much more high quality title compared to these and you can obviously tell there's allot more content in it....
shoddy  +   1136d ago
Fanboys always brag about sales so what ever sell more is the best.

Bu bu but teh sales!!!!!
EVILDEAD360  +   1136d ago
I'd say that Halo 4 looks to be special, Black Ops 2 looks like a product that Treyarch has taken to a new level, and havent payed MOH but I have some friends who say they really enjoyed the demo.

MOH as a brand may never fully recover from the Taliban controversy and reception from a lot of the critics a couple of years ago in the wake of EAs initial boasts of taking down COD.

What I do know is the undeniable pull on millions of gamers dollars will come from the 123 punch of BO2, Halo 4, and Assasins creed 3. Leaving MOH in an uphill battle to gain the attention it may well deserve.

It's not about the sales it's about 3 developers that went all in and may have made this holiday one of the best yet in terms of great games at the end of this gen.

Just me humble take on it

Chalk up another one for Dishonored.
LX-General-Kaos  +   1135d ago
Halo 4 looks of much greater quality without question
geth1gh  +   1135d ago
This is so so sad. Which shooter will be the best this year?

List 3 games, Halo 4 being the one with the least amount of sequels. That's right i said the one with 4 in the title.

Where the fuck is all the originality these days? Are extremely misguided preteens deciding the future of the gaming industry?

My vote is Planetside 2, and you know what it's free! I grew up on console gaming and didn't even own a gaming pc until I had a 360. But damn if it doesn't look like it is going down the drain

Hey LX-General-Kaos.... hypocrite.

Halo does look the best, with the most content, and in my opinion, the best game play.
BattleAxe  +   1135d ago
No need to read this article, Far Cry 3 will be the best FPS of 2012.
onyoursistersback  +   1136d ago
lol....so true!!!
my pick, Borderlands 2!!!

Don't know and really don't care. But one thing is for sure, they're all worn out franchises that need to die...or at least bring something new to gaming instead of rehashing the same thing over and over.
showtimefolks  +   1135d ago
Isn't borderlands 2 a FPS? So why s this article only about halo and cod?

Halo has a learning curve a little bit but cod anyone can pick up and feel like a ore gamer IMO

Still for me it's borderlands 2 the best FPS of 2012
otherZinc  +   1135d ago
Its Halo 4:
Single player
Campaign co-op
Campaign 4 player co-op
Spec ops single player
Spec ops 4 player co-op
Forge Mode
And more...

Yeah, Halo 4.
TheRealSpy  +   1135d ago
I agree with you, and i can't really stand COD (to me it just feels like baby's first FPS -- EZmode). BUT! COD is not without its share of features.

Non of them if you ask me because I am not planning on playing neither of them.
ZigZagLagger  +   1135d ago
Halo 4 all day baby!
Crazyglues  +   1135d ago
Wow at first I would say come on really -First take MOH right out, it's not on the level of HALO 4, you gotta be kidding me...

and Black-Ops 2 is only there because of sales, it will sell like crazy, but as far as pushing the envelope nothings going to touch HALO 4

Black-Ops 2 will probably have a nice single player campaign and a good Zombie mode.. -but it's on the same 2007engine with the same looking out dated graphics engine- (for that reason you gotta take some points)

But HALO 4 is going to have all three, Great Campaign, amazing co-op, amazing Multi-player all on a new engine with probably the best looking halo world to date..

Not to mention sweet return to the halo 1 feel, game is gonna kick ass..

Clear Winner: HALO 4 All day and night baby... LoL

-Still getting all 3-

PtRoLLFacE  +   1137d ago
there is a long answer but i give ya the short one, halo 4
Hellsvacancy  +   1137d ago
Im not buying any of them so....... I guess, Borderlands 2 it is for me, until I play/like something else this year

I am rather bored of Borderlands admittedly, hoping I enjoy Dishonored more

Is Aliens out this year?
Nitrowolf2  +   1137d ago
Aliens is next year :(
Shadonic  +   1137d ago
i liked borderlands 2 but out of the 3 on the list Halo 4 is the clear winner. Also dishonoreds pretty good i would rent it though if i were you also why arent you getting any of these titles?

Platform exclusives does not not count.
Borderlands 2 is my pick by the way.

Why wouldn't a platform exclusive count? How many Game of the Year awards have the Uncharted games gotten?

Who (other than you) really cares if it's exclusive? A good game is a good game regardless of what company logo is on your controller
HammadTheBeast  +   1135d ago
Good post. +Bubbles.
DevilishSix  +   1136d ago
Why just between those three games mentioned in title? Right now Borderlands 2 has been best fps for me this year, but Far Cry 3 wasn't mentioned either.

Also, lets not forget that Dishonored is first person and can be played with alot of shooting and I bet it will stand taller than COD, MOH, and maybe even Halo 4.

It has to be BLACK OPS II guys.....
DiRtY  +   1136d ago
Let's compare then.


Halo - epic universe, dozens of battles, 6 books, TV series, rich background story of the protagonist etc etc.

CoD - random guy needs to kill another random guy.


Halo - Great singleplayer, great multiplayer, map editor, coop, episodic content after release, stats of all multiplayer matches, cinema to record your gameplay, Firefight

CoD - good multiplayer, short singleplayer, coop for firefight-like gameplay


Halo - Abput to become one of the best looking games on 360.

CoD - Same as MW in 2007.


Halo - finally got the gun sounds right. Realistic and intense sound. Soundtrack one of the best in the industry.

CoD - same as MW in 2007.

Any other points? Sure BO II will sell more.
bubblebeam  +   1136d ago
Halo actually has more than 6 books. I just finished the sixth book, The Cole Protocol today.

There are a few others, some leading into Halo 4. Plus comics, and short stories.

Halo has finally got the look AND sound of the weapons right, I agree. I was asking for more beefy weapons (used to playing Resistance, some of the best guns) and they delivered.

Everyones opinion is valid, but for me it's Halo 4, no comparison. It like asking who would win in a foot-race between Usain Bolt and the queen of England.
Blastoise  +   1135d ago
What a totally fair comparison.

Halo has a great singleplayer? lol. Did you even play Halo reach?
BlueEye  +   1135d ago
You really don't think you're overshining Halo and throwing CoD in the dirt there? Great this great that, nothing bad, it's the golden game of ultimate destiny. CoD has "oh just this, maybe some of that, overall just stuff".
SJPFTW  +   1136d ago
DragonKnight  +   1135d ago

Tetris 2012 GOTY.
aviator189  +   1136d ago
I haven't played them yet..
But if I had to pre-choose from those, I'd say Halo 4. Everything about the game, every component, looks fantastic and well-built.
Captain Qwark 9  +   1136d ago
no idea why its just those three lol but so far borderlands 2 is the best. I watched the first 25 min of halo 4 and it was stunning so thats def a contender. Far cry 3 also looks top notch and black ops 2 looks pretty solid but im not into cod so its one of the previous 3 for me.
The beta for medal of honor was total shit so thats not even in the running
Chuk5  +   1136d ago
First of all, just cut MOH2 out right then.
robavila95  +   1136d ago
Well let's see... the MOHW beta totally sucked, and I've been playing the same COD since '07. Yep, Halo 4 is the only one left in that formula.
Intentions  +   1136d ago
For me its Halo 4.
Thefreeman012  +   1136d ago
For me its non because im completely tired of military shooters and game series that have been milked dry. I dont understand why in the world people still play COD, or Medal of Honor. Doesnt the whole realistic shooter with mediocre graphics and uninspired storyline get boring. and for Halo which looks somewhat decent i still dont see it being that much more different than past halo games.
Qrphe  +   1136d ago
>implying any of those three will be the best FPS

Nice try of a loaded question
TronEOL  +   1136d ago
ALL. I'll play Halo 4 if it comes out for PC.
BitbyDeath  +   1136d ago
Borderlands 2 followed by Halo 4 for me.
Summons75  +   1136d ago
Well considering they are not out yet, there is no way of knowing. However looking at history and what we have seen so far.

Call of Duty is the same old same old as the four years. Medal of Honor is certainly an improvement over the last game and I and all my friends had a great time with the beta. Halo 4 certainly looks like it is going to redefine what online Halo will mean to play, it looks like it has the same personality as the Halo I grew up with but with improvements that are a breathe of fresh air into the franchise.

I'm looking forward to Halo the most but "the best shooter" is going to be completely personal taste to each person.
SolidGear3  +   1136d ago
Out of the three I'd say Halo 4
Ron_Danger  +   1136d ago
Borderlands 2 or (mainly for originality) Unfinished Swan
AusRogo  +   1136d ago
Out of the 3? Definatly Halo 4. But I'm also pumped for MoH (minority here) and Black Ops 2 does look pretty good for a cod, but ill get that later on during s sale. Just trying to do everything in Borderlands 2 before MoH comes in next week! Oh and btw, is there a legendary edition of Halo 4?? I looked everywhere and only found the limited edition so I pre ordered that.

Only the Limited Edition and the Limited Edition Console bundle.
FarCryLover182  +   1136d ago
All I know is MoH will not be the best. The beta put me off of the game, I was excited to try it out....but it felt like a Battlefield 3- lite version.
glennco  +   1136d ago
i could even play it. the dumbasses allow you to swap thumbsticks but this also swaps triggers. i am too ingrained in BF trigger placement that i just don't want to confuse my brain in BF which i care more about. shooting instead of aiming and vice versa gets old fast.
Hassassin  +   1136d ago
none of those for sure...
(out of the three, Halo 4, it would be interesting if it came out on PC)

ChunkyLover53  +   1136d ago
I'll have all three, but I expect to spend the most time with Halo 4 and Black ops 2.
Adolph Fitler  +   1136d ago
Far Cry 3 I hope. I would love for Ubisoft to pull out an upset with that game. It looks like it has potential in spades, & the Island setting for a fps, or just about any game is awesome & sadly gone missing from the genre since Far Cry & the original Halo.

I hope Far Cry 3 ends up having a aaa+ campaign, along with aaa+ multiplayer, both co-op & more importantly, competative online.
I also hope Ubisoft can sort out the lag issues that have plagued EVERY Far Cry game in existance.
Hazmat13  +   1136d ago
i say FarCry 3! lol haven't played it yet but i know its gonna be awesome!
telekineticmantis  +   1136d ago
probably Halo4. Total Package, probably COD
WiiLovePS360  +   1136d ago
I played the Medal of Honour Warfighter Beta on the 360 a few days back, and based purely on that it is most definitely not going to be the best FPS game of 2012.

It was multiplayer only, and it was terrible quite frankly. The ability to see people on the other team through walls just because they were shooting at someone else on your team is a joke. Sometimes you seem to die from a single bullet to the foot, other times you're a giant bullet sponge. The levels have poor playability as lots of things like bushes arent able to be run through and cause you to stop/start often.

I had high hopes for it after seeing the single player videos, but they were quickly dashed after playing the multiplayer.
CPTN MITCHELL  +   1136d ago
What part of BETA u don't understand? Also did u see the not final product or game play disclaimer before u press start?
WiiLovePS360  +   1136d ago
Since you tried to attack my intelligence, how about I give you a bit of your own?

The Beta ran from October 5 to 15.

The full retail game released on October 23.

How much do you think they're going to change in 8 days, seeing as though the game has already gone gold, and was being manufactured for sale before the beta even began?

Do you think that they're going to delay the game a mere 6 days out from release and completely re-write their modifications to the Frostbite engine?

The Beta was for server stress and performance testing, nothing more. It was not to get feedback so they can make changes - there wasn't even a forum for you to give feedback on! I know because I tried to give my feedback after having my screen go completely black apart from the HUD every time I adjusted the controller sensitivity while in a match, with the only way to get the screen to go back to normal being to quit back to the dashboard and load it up again.

Think before you post. A game that releases 8 days after its "Beta" finishes is not going to change AT ALL from the Beta, as it has already been completed.

Think b4 I post huh, what about stop crying after u play...The same sh!t was said about Bf3 during The beta and look what happend is one bad ass game miles away from mw3 Wicho is recycled game play since 2007 and same will b with blck upps 2
WiiLovePS360  +   1135d ago
I see you have a MOH:W avatar. I guess that explains why you are getting so defensive.

Nothing really changed from the BF3 beta to the retail version either.
